MGB wire wheel with loose spokes

636

This is kind of scary. Having cleaned all the wire wheels on the MGB I remounted them and checked everything for play. Three of the wheels are nice and tight with no wobble so I expect the wheels and wheel bearings are good. This fourth wheel is another story however! Play the video and be ready to freak out. I wonder how long and how many miles the MG has gone in this condition. This wheel is on the front, must create a lot of play in the steering as well. At least the sopes on the hub side look OK so I’ll likely give it a shot truing the wheel.
